LESS IS MORE.
Instead of trying to continually add more onto your already over flowing plate. Try and get rid of all those habits, routines, or tasks that continually don't serve you.
Getting fit isn't easy it takes hard work and dedication along with consistency.
Trusting the process of change is another grind to getting results.
If you feel your not getting anywhere maybe add something into your fitness routine like the one me and Costas are doing.
Boxing is great for stamina cardio vascular and strength your punching power will grow each time you hit those pads.
You will be gaining strength burning calories getting fit and leaner.
and once you get the process going keep on top and run with it don't swim against the tide keep on your journey even small steps to start.
Results come with action you want to be heading into the gym motivated and heading out that 1% fitter leaner and stronger and it all starts with action.
Excuses don't burn calories I'm afraid so we need to be consistent.
Trust in the process you will succeed if you do.
Cadre Athlete, Tracy, bustin’ out her kipping pull ups with strength and control. 💪♥️
This #fitmom is the epitome of consistency and slow progress. “It took me 15 years to become an overnight success.” 😜
Strength, fitness, and skills happen over a long period of time, with a lot of very small, consistent steps, and Tracy proves it with her undeniable results!
Two years ago, she was doing singles in her pull ups. One year ago, she was doing doubles and triples. And today, she’s now 5-10 reps at a time, every time! 💪♥️🙌
Keep it up, Tracy! You inspire us more than you know! 🏋🏻♀️

Can you drink alcohol and still lose weight? Can I have fun while sticking to a healthy diet and lifestyle? The answer is yes but you only have 2 options and none of them are beer. Beer is full of empty carbs.
1. Wine which is full antioxidants (but gross if you ask me)
2. Spirits like tequila and vodka.
I think I was 29 or 30 when I got my 1st manicure (for our wedding). I never became a nail-salon regular or even consistently did them on my own. But last summer, my beautiful friend Ashley, did a #GirlWashYourFace -inspired manicure using imagery from the cover of Rachel Hollis's popular book (*pic in comments)…since then, I have incorporated regular visits to for a creative outlet, a break from the "daily grind", and have recognized that one of the reasons I love this so much, is that I think it really parallels with 🅛🅘🅕🅔 as well as some of the concepts I teach through health coaching. Check it out: #NailArtIsMoreThanJustALittleSelfcare 💅ɪᴛ's ᴀ ᴘʀᴏᴄᴇss!!!💅 I start by deciding what theme/artistic vibe I want to create. Then, I make a sketched or electronic design (THE PLAN) of what I envision. 💅ᴛᴇᴀᴍᴡᴏʀᴋ!!!💅 I have ideas, but Ashley is the pro. She's my advisor and though I understand some techniques, she knows the order of operations and logistics. So, I am learning those as we go, to apply to future designs. 💅ᴅᴏɴ'ᴛ ʙᴇ ᴀғʀᴀɪᴅ ᴏғ ғᴀɪʟᴜʀᴇ!!!💅
Sometimes concepts and actual application do not align. Sometimes techniques can get a bit complex or the desired outcome isn't quite achieved. This is when we discuss options, we revise the plan, and we ADAPT! 💅ɪɴsᴘɪʀᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ᴄʀᴇᴀᴛᴇ ɴᴇᴡ&ɪᴍᴘʀᴏᴠᴇᴅ!!!💅
Following the processed from vision to final product is satisfying and fulfilling...but anyone who lives life with a GROWTH MINDSET knows that achieving goals means making new ones. It means creating improvement and striving for more. I usually leave an appointment already spinning with ideas for our next visit! 💅ᴄᴏɴsɪsᴛᴇɴᴄʏ! ɪɴᴠᴇsᴛ ɪɴ sᴇʟғ!!!💅
Like anything, the more you do things, the better it becomes. Practice, practice practice. And, investing in ourselves brings us joy and ignites our spirit. INVEST, doesn't always mean financially. It can be time. It can be prioritizing. It can be reorganizing your day around things that make you happy. And, it's not selfish-It's necessary!
Consistency/ Today is the six month mark of my fitness and wellness journey. For the past six months I’ve consistently shown up for myself even in the face of self doubt and fear of what others may think of the journey I’d chosen to take with BeachBody. But here I am six months later feeling more comfortable in the skin that I’m in regardless of my dress size or the number on the scale. *
What makes this time different than all of the other times where I’ve struggled or chased that ‘goal’ weight has been all in my mindset. I’ve focused on the little changes that I am in control of that will lead me to where I want to go. That’s right you ARE in CONTROL! 💥
This new lifestyle I’ve found is SUSTAINABLE. I have NOT restricted myself in my nutrition so intensely that I don’t allow myself to have treats. Hello 🍕! When you do that you just crave what you restrict and end up binging. I also have maintained a fitness routine that is sustainable and empowers me to move my body because it makes me feel good and makes me stronger 💪🏻 not because I am punishing myself for eating too much at dinner.
Consistency pays off, I’m living proof ♥️
Shout out to Adrian Davis!!! He came to us with the desire to move and get in shape again in June of 2019. Like many people, Adrian had some previous football injuries that we have worked around. Not only have we watched his overall strength and fitness improve but he is living his life outside the gym better since being with us. #goadrian#consistency#hardwork#lift#strength#proud#coach#gym

Overhead Press Day
New videos starting up. Going to try to post 2-3 times a week. Follow along to see progress in strength, size, techniques and video making skills!
I don’t know who needs to read this today but.... 👀👀 *sips tea* Lol in all seriousness, it’s still February and it’s not too late to start back up. To recommit and buckle down. Get it together now. Let’s not get to December and you’re wondering what the hell happened in 2020! WE GOT THIS.
Have you tried this exercise yet? This is definitely one that will have you wondering if you ever had any balance😆
Because you are balancing on only one upper and lower limb on each side, your core (abs & low back) has to work super hard to stabilize you. .
This is an excellent exercise for strengthening the low back, building up your glute muscles (butt muscles) and challenging all those tiny muscles that you use when you’re balancing. .
🙌It is necessary to challenge your balance and try to get those muscles firing for you now because they will be SUPER important as you age and realize your balance gets less and less. .
Making & keeping your body strong is important to its longevity. .
If you haven’t done this one yet, start doing it today - just 2 minutes each day!
Check my stories later for more details on this exercise (and maybe Rogue clickety clacking around again😁)
Let me know if you’ve tried this already and if you lasted 20 seconds!👇👇

This color coordinated oily shelf makes me happy! I’m thinking of painting this one white and hanging it 💗 What do you like for displaying your oils? The Kit has a handy standing tray to use or TJ Maxx has some cute ones too! A handy tip that has made all the difference for me~ keeping my oils in places where I see them constantly, it reminds me to use them. I have a hard time being consistent, but the results I’ve seen in my hormones, skin health and energy has been wonderful and so worth it! 🤗 Keep those oils close by! If you’d like a handy list to keep on hand of what the oils do, message me and I’ll send you one! 😃 Please show me your oily displays! I love new ideas 💗

7 Exercises to increase stability. You can perform them as a warm up or along side traditional strength exercise.
Balance/Stabilization training is important, it won’t increase muscle mass (ermmmn, no thanks) but it will help you strengthen your core muscles and improve your stability. We all need it in our day to day activities, so wind doesn’t sweep us off our feet or we loose balance from “small push”. Also a good training program for Seniors so they prevent injuries from falls. Oh and it creates muscle balance in the body.

I had 250kg for 2-3REPS as the plan for my deadlift today. I got 2 for now, I’ll try again another time🤝. #deadlifts
Make whatever you are struggling with a habit! Whether that is being consistent with going to the gym. Going for that run. Prepping your meals. Eating healthy. Eating more meals at home...It will take time and discipline initially, it won’t be easy. That’s why you should put in steps to make it more manageable. -
Working out is a habit for me now. But when I first join a gym it was a stuggllle to get me there & often if anything came up - whether that was social events, exams etc the gym would be ditched for 2-3 weeks. It took me scheduling my workouts at the start of the week, bringing my gym gear with me to collage so I go starlight afterwards, paying for that gym membership. I repeated all theses steps week on week until it was drilled into me. Now working out is just part of my weekly routine. -
The little steps might sound tedious but believe me they will compound over time & you will have build solid habits that will get you closer to your goal ✨

You don’t have to be extreme, just consistent. 👊🏼
Lately I’ve been getting asked how I’ve gotten into the shape I’m in now. I think people expect some sort of secret or magic workout or something extreme like having to do two a days but the reality and honest answer is just... CONSISTENCY.
I designed a program and have stuck with it. And I have set macro goals and 9 times out of 10 I have stuck with them. I have been consistently pushing myself and striving to be better than I was yesterday. I am so proud that i have been able to maintain that consistency because sometimes that is the hardest part. But honestly, that’s my opinion. It doesn’t take extremes, just hard work and consistency. 👏🏼 So start today, and keep going tomorrow, and the next day! It can be a slow start, all that matters is taking that first step and then continuing to put one foot in front of the other (one workout into the next). You’ve got this!!! Let’s crush the week! 💪🏼
Consistency and a quick physique update!
Consistency is everything in this journey. There are no quick fixes, it’s the hard work you put in day in and day out. We see the progress updates and transformation pictures, but aren’t always there for the daily grind.
I’m probably a little more than halfway through my cut and am pleased with my progress. Even though it’s slow, progress comes from not missing a training session, getting in my steps and nailing my macros every single day no matter the circumstance. Is it easy all the time? No, but I love this process of challenging myself and seeing what I’m capable of. Plus, the results are that much sweeter knowing what it took to get there!
Whatever your goal is, you must be consistent if you want to succeed. It doesn’t have to be a strict cut, it can be just creating a few small healthy habits. Pick something you can stick with for the long term, it won’t happen overnight. Be honest with yourself and don’t set yourself up for failure. The goals you can keep up for substantial amount of time is what will lead you to a result you can keep! #remsfitkitch

Consistency Is Key 🔑

When I finish writing a training program (or dieting strategy) for a client, I always ask myself, is this easily explainable? Over the years simplicity has pretty much become part of my overall philosophy. Please note, simple doesn’t mean basic. As Einstein said, “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler”. If what you are doing is not easy to explain and understand, it probably needs to be re-evaluated. 💥 💪🏼🤛🏼
